With Labor Day weekend, comes the unofficial end of summer… for everyone not in Southern California. For us, we still have weeks of sunshine and warm temps before fall comes barreling in. So how should you spend those last few weeks of warmth? We have a few ideas for you below!

 

 

626 Night Market

 

Get ready for food, music, games and more at the original and largest Asian inspired night market in the United States. The massive event draws in 80,000+ attendees and aims to “unite and empower the community by serving as a platform for showcasing local entrepreneurs, businesses, artists, and talent,” says their website. 

 

The next event takes place at 285 W Huntington Dr. Arcadia, CA on August 31 through September 2nd. Admission is cash only and $5 at the door. Doors open at 4:00pm each day and close at 1:00am on Friday and Saturday, and at 12:00am on Sunday.

Dance DTLA

 

We still have 2 weekends left of Dance DTLA and they saved the best for last! August 31 features a DJ Night, curated by Nosaj Thing, and September 7 is a 90’s night themed Dance Downtown! 

 

Dance DTLA has been a staple for 14 seasons, and each year the events just get bigger. Head downtown on Friday nights throughout the summer to dance beneath the stars! Dance Downtown takes place from 7:00pm – 11:00 pm at Grand Park. Dance DTLA offers beginner dance lessons alongside a live band or DJ, and alternates between DJ Nights (9:00 p.m. – midnight), which features sets curated by influential artists.

 

Food and drinks can be purchased on site and parking is recommended at The Music Center’s Main Garage (Lot 14) where it is $5 after 8pm. 

 

 

 

New Filmmakers LA 

 

Each month, New Filmmakers LA showcases the best movies new filmmakers have to offer. The upcoming event, taking place Saturday, September 8th will be hosted at The Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills.

 

This month’s festival features both local and international films by world-class emerging filmmakers from Mexico, Brazil, Peru, Spain, Colombia, Chile, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Argentina and the United States across three short film programs. 

 

Tickets are available for $5 per program advanced purchase / $7 per program at the door and $15 for all-night access passes, which provide access to all three film programs with open bar throughout the entire event.
